    Hello everyone,

    It's really great that we can use git repositories inside the package manager.
    What would be greater would be to add versionning so that when we click the refresh button

    A new version of a package would be detected and we could update the package like we normaly do for the usual unity packages

    To be able to do so, the manifest could be edited like this :
    First we setup the versionning like for any other packages

    Second we add a repositories part where we can encode the git url and the package concerned :

    I don't know if it's already been discussed or planned but I would love to see something like this emerge.
    Adding the git repositories are the way to go but I think we can still go a little bit further if that's possible :).

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your feedback. This is something we have discussed in the past but so far we haven't planned anything yet.

    Nevertheless I have forwarded your feedback to the team.
